As an administrator, you can use the Select Box Data to define the data you want to populate in the task fields. You must create a Select Box Data XML file that contains the data you want to populate in the task fields and import the XML file in the CA Identity Manager environment. The imported data is used as a source for task fields for which you want to populate options. When modifying a user task, configure the properties of the task field to use the Select Box Data to populate the options for the selected task field.
Note: Through Select Box Data XML file, you can maintain the fields to populate accurate data and limit possible responses.

You can specify custom data that you want to use to populate select boxes in XML files. For example, when you create a user, you can use Select Box Data XML files to populate options for the City or State drop down menu.
